Keith Douglas Perry

BSc (honours) Town & Country Planning

Project Management & Urban Development Specialist
Member of the British Royal Town Planning Institute
Member of the Hong Kong Institute of Planners
Principal Partner – Urbanlogic Ltd

Keith Perry is a widely respected project manager and urban development specialist with over 20 years of practical working experience in leading high profile projects for government agencies, international funding agencies and the private development sector. He has worked in some 18 countries, spread across Europe, Asia, the Middle East and even the South Pacific, where he is an experienced project manager and team leader. His specialist urban development skills include master planning and urban design, urban policy and land management, city planning and new town development, urban renewal/regeneration, social development and resettlement planning, governance and institutional development planning and market assessments.

Keith has developed a niche capability in integrated urban regeneration and development projects, where he is completely familiar with the processes of urban and environmental planning and infrastructure planning and design relevant to the needs of developing countries. It is in this context that he has worked closely with the international funding agencies on high profile integrated urban development projects, including: (i) the Asian Development Bank funded “City Region Development Project” in Bangladesh; (ii) the Asian Development Bank funded Pasig River Environmental Management and Rehabilitation Project in the Philippines; (iii) the World Bank funded “Cavite-Laguna Metropolitan Development and Environment Project” in the Philippines; (iv) the European Commission’s “Urban Environment Planning Programme” in Vietnam; (v) the Tan Hoa – Lo Gom Urban Upgrading Project funded by Belgian Technical Cooperation in Vietnam and (vi) the European Investment Bank’s (EIB) Municipal Environment and Infrastructure Project in Syria.

Keith has worked frequently and directly with government agencies, leading teams in the preparation of development plans for major new cities and in developing strategies and implementing plans for urban regeneration. In Hong Kong he forged new policy initiatives and plans for the Hong Kong Government/Land Development Corporation (eg Tai Kok Tsui Urban Renewal Study and the Study for the Restructuring of Obsolete Industrial Areas).

Keith has also been a consultant to major players in the private development sector, for the preparation and promotion of strategic master plans and feasibility studies. This has included Sun Hung Kei Properties and New World Properties in Hong Kong and the Ayala and Lopez groups in the Philippines. He is therefore fully conversant with the potential for private sector investment and participation in the development/redevelopment process.
